One of the major complications of the H1N1 and Covid-19 pandemic was severe acute lung injury, also called the acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS). This common lung injury and inflammation syndrome remains a major cause of ICU admissions, morbidity and mortality.

How do we better stratify patients with ARDS into distinct subgroups in the hopes of better understanding divergent outcomes? What role, if any, does the microbiome play in this process? Please join us for our Bench to Bedside Grand Rounds series given by Bryan McVerry, MD and Georgios Kitsios, MD, PhD as they discuss ARDS phenotypes and the microbiome.
